International chemical logistics and supply chain specialist Suttons Group has acquired IS Logistics Group (ISLG) in Singapore.
Operating from three locations in Singapore, ISLG provides supply chain and logistics services to the chemical manufacturing industry.
The company provides a wide range of services which includes road transport through its own fleet of vehicles, warehousing with drumming facilities and additional value adding supply chain activities to large multinational chemical manufacturers.
John Sutton, Suttons Group CEO said:
”Our latest acquisition is a significant step as we continue to build our business in logistics hubs and petrochemical manufacturing zones across the world.
“Having a logistics asset base is essential for us to serve our customers more effectively. Infrastructure on the ground will enable us to grow the successful business we already have in Singapore and provide our customers with an even wider range of logistics and supply chain products and services.
“The acquisition is an ideal fit for Suttons. Combining the services offered by each company will enable us to provide a truly exceptional customer experience that is focused on added value, innovation and service.”
This is the second acquisition Suttons has made in the last 12 months. In October 2013 the company completed the purchase of Chinese transport company Hanchi Logistics. The acquisition of ISLG further reflects Suttons’ commitment to providing regional expertise and infrastructure as well as international reach for customers.
